>> darth vader. >> i think it's probably -- i mean, the only really organizing principle around all of these first hires is that these are all people that donald trump is loyal to or feels like were loyal to him. so, i mean, i guess the easy answer is it's just him wanting to surround himself with people who he is comfortable with or he wants to reward, or maybe the less reading it's cronyism. i think case-by-case it can little problematic. >> do you feel -- there seem to be two emerging wings of the trump administration. one the more establishment wing helmed by jared kushner and another by steve bannon. do you think the first round of picks are representative of either man having more of a say? >> i don't think so. i mean, the only winning right now that matters is the whim of donald trump. i don't see this as a wing administration so much, as much

the new england journal of medicine concluded that celebrex is just as safe for your heart as rival drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen. >> reporter: mary kay is a respiratory therapist and takes celebr celebrex. >> it's my hands and shoulders and elbows and back. i've had back surgery because i have had such severe arthritis. similar mechanism to vioxx which was pulled from the market in 2004 because of increased risk of heart attack and stroke. were you concerned? vioxx is causing heart problems. what will secelebrex? the same group. >> i was concerned. something in the back of your mind going is it okay to take this everyday.

6:39 am
>> 30% were lost to follow-up. they weren't able to to the dose as they were other medications which could limit the interpretations. the patients were not as high risk as we would have hoped in the sense only 20% had previous cardiovascular disease. we don't know which patients during the trial were on aspirin or not and whether that influenced the result. >> from my point of view, sks the -- it came about because they tend to cause fewer ulcers. from my point of view that's a good thing. we need to emphasize we are not talking a person who for a headache. not what this study looked at.
6:40 am
because they had arthritis. >> moving on. let's talk about statins. millions of americans take these cholesterol loring drugs to combat heart disease. the american heart association ran ranks cardio vas large for strokes. the fda estimates every day more than 2,000 americans die from these updated rems fcommendations thi week. >> statins are pretty bad in this country and used to lower cholesterol and very effective
6:41 am
the way that they work is by basically decreasing the production of cholesterol in the body by the liver and increasing the receptors in the liver that pull out the bad cholesterol. they also have some other effects anti-inflammatory and other effects as well. >> what is the task recommending? >> in 2008 they talked about screening and now talking about who should be treated. basically, if you are and you have a risk factor being hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes or you smoke, then you have your doctor calculate what is called a ten year risk score. what that is is basically your risk of having a heart attack or stroke over the next ten years and we do that with a formula or an equation. if that risk score is greater than 10% there is benefit according to these recommendations for lower modern dose statin. if the risk is greater than 7.5%
6:42 am
those over 76 we don't have enough data to support one way or another whether statins are helpful. >> jon, so this class of drugs has proven to be fairly safe but what is the potential side effects? >> there is no free lunch. you have to have respect for all of these medications. aches and pains is common and can cause damage to the muscles and interaction with certain drugs and liver enzymes can go up and raise the blood sugar level and slightly increase risk of diabetes and people have some problems with memory. any time you take any medicine, if it can happen, it's fa pharmacological can help, you need to be aware. >> thank you both. thanks for your time. up next, did fake news on the internet help donald trump win the presidency? there is growing kerve about its impact on american democracy and

6:47 am
is dan acker mman and jeff jarv. welcome to the program. the president says the proliferation of these sites makes common conversation almost impossible. to what degree do you think this is going to prompt a review in terms of how some of these social media sites make their money and where they take their information from? >> the social media sites are used off of engagement and technologically driven and they haven't had to deal with whether something is real or not real or true or not real. they are looking to engage their users. now they say there are consequences to that. they are going to have to figure out a way to remain relevant to people and not have a disservice to their business interests. >> jeff, where do you think the responsibility lies here in terms of policing this, if it can be policed? >> i don't want to see facebook and google become the sensors of the cops to the world. >> yes. >> it's not their job to decide what is fake or real or true or not but they do have a role,
6:48 am
too. before you pass something on do you know what that is about? i think what we need to do is inform the users better. before you post something you might want to say "the new york times" or buzzfeed looked into that and if you want to make fun of it that is your free speech right to do. but we need to inform users better and i think we need to revive more information to them. >> dan, it's not just social media stories. "the new york times" is reporting on chat box which helps circulate and misinformation and otherwise confuse folks, right? >> interesting. one of the big growth areas in terms of technology is figuring out how chat box can do that. the way we want to do is customer service or people are using that technology now to create these conversations and almost gum up the works with fake news and fake conversation rather than what we should be chfg is real conversations. >> what are facebook and google doing to deal with this or what can they do?
6:49 am
get rid of some of the worst accounts and twitter as well. i just put up in a post this morning that talks about 15 ways that we think we can improve the way this works. that includes us in the media. the problem is we have abandoned this notion of social media. we say, look, you have to come to our site and watch our show or read our story. so a site like which isn't always fake but often good but they get 300 million impressions a why isn't "the new york times" or cbs so people can pass this around in their conversations with truth and journalism and facts? >> was there -- you know, we hear certain sites that propelled misinformation about hillary clinton more than donald trump. was there a symmetry in terms of fake news leading up to the 2016 election? >> i think there was and a motivation for it behind
6:50 am
paid based on the traffic they you want to get the fake news get the most engagement and most shares you think in your market research is going to do the best for people. and that is how these companies are tackling this. they are tackling it as a technology and money problem by saying we are going to cut off the ads to these fake news site its. >> who are these companies? >> a lot of it individual guys who figured out how to churn out fake news and slap adsn if it made more sense to put your more stories about cooking and flowers, they would do that but they found out fake news is where the money is. >> thank you both. a brave new world. thanks for your time. coming up, some big stars are about to receive the medal of freedom from president obama. but you have probably never heard of two of the most important and influential women on the list. we will tell you about them. you're watching "cbs this

7:21 am
would later become the signature pieces in our show. >> reporter: at what point does it become viable and something that you realize you're going to be doing for a long time? >> well, it was all kind of a series of accidents. we would do a performance that as a guest in someone else's show and the next thing they asked us to do a full show. we said we don't have that much material but see what we can do. at a certain point, we had enough material to go -- it was a sh let's do this. >> reporter: the idea of a silent trio of blue men performing tricks and culture confused some at first. what is "it"? what is it you do. >> reporter: as the founders chol told charlie rose in 1992. >> all of the great technology people were coming up with serves the people of people people in their apartments with fax machines and everything and vcrs. our sensibility is getting
